Thanks for posting it. I completely forgot to do it
It's a good first round draw, and considering Bartoli has beat her 4-0 times, it'll be a good match for Ayumi to play freely, and also, Ayumi played better in Canada in her one match than Marion did.
Stosur is now in the Toronto final. I find it encouraging everyone who has defeated Ayumi the past couple of weeks have ended up lasting till late in the tournament.
Me too. I knew it was ridiculous when people were saying it was such a terrible loss to lose to Stosur. It's a great draw, Alona Bondarenko. Hits hard and flat, just what Ayumi likes. She's out of form and seems very low on confidence, almost the opposite of Ayumi. But you never know what can happen, Alona is a terrific player. Best of luck, Ayumi-chan!
I don't think there's much chance of Ayumi losing this one. Hopefully eerything goes as planned, and she'll get another shot at Bartoli. The Stosur match was a good benchmark, and hopefully the Bartoli match can confirm Ayumi is on her way up.
